Waterfox repositories

#1 Post by PondLife » Fri Nov 02, 2018 10:39 am

When Waterfox updated to 56.2.5 today the updates came through the opensuse.org repositories so is it safe to switch off the dl.bintray.com repo ( I have had updates hang on this repo a couple of times although not recently) or should I just leave well alone.

no idea...We might need to revisit the mx-packageinstaller routine for waterfox if the guy has changed repos.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Well, if they are using the OBS, that means they have to upload the source files too, which means those are available to the world. So we packagers can download them and rebuild for the MX repo!

Let me take a look.

well, I can install OK from the original repo, but I get dpkg postinstall errors from the version in the OBS repo, so maybe not quite baked yet.

I can't see any Stretch builds in the OBS--the closest is Debian testing. This is probably due to cargo not being available in Stretch, though you can download the Stretch deb from the Debian pool manually.

This was the original apt-line which was created by package-installer ,
now commented out:

Code: Select all

$ head  /etc/apt/sources.list.d/waterfox.list home:hawkeye116477:waterfox.list 
==> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/waterfox.list <==
# deb https://dl.bintray.com/hawkeye116477/waterfox-deb release main
This somehow was created by waterfox during update:

Code: Select all

==> home:hawkeye116477:waterfox.list <==
deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/hawkeye116477:/waterfox/xUbuntu_16.04/ /
And no error during reinstall is shown by apt:

Code: Select all

The postinst script issue seems related to all the AppArmor profile stuff they have in there, which I don't think Debian really supports out of the box. I doubt their Buster packages install there...So I just adapted the scripts from Pale Moon to add Waterfox to the alternatives system. So far I have 64-bit builds that install and work, and I'm uploading those for now, since 32-bit builds keep failing in Vbox after lengthy builds for various reasons...the last one with

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Memory exhausted
This with 10 GB and 8 CPUs allocated to the VM. I'm going to knock the build down to three parallel threads and see what happens after an even longer build.
